A book to encourage children to look after their planet.
Do you want to teach your children how to recycle? When life gets hectic, we often forget about the little things — tossing a plastic bottle in the right bin or shutting the lights off when we leave the room. Kids can be good advocates for change. You just have to guide them and show them how to have fun. Recycling is great for our environment. Instead of sitting in a landfill or burning in an incinerator, trash can find a second life, conserving the Earth’s natural resources (e.g., trees and water). Recycling also reduces the consumption of fossil fuels and prevents increased pollution.
The first step of recycling is to reduce —use less than we currently do. It all starts with a simple dinner lesson. Most people have good intentions when it comes to recycling, but it can be tricky to know what to recycle. You and your kids can recycle plastic, paper, glass, metal and cardboard. Are you ready to get started? Teaching your kids how to reduce, reuse and recycle is easy. You and the children can also upcycle and learn how to compost. Start by explaining how it’s good for the environment and read this book to your children as often as you can.
